February of 1864, the Chapman Family, the prestigious owners of the "Holladay House", hosted a grand wedding reception for their daughter and her new husband. The reception, detailed in a published diary of a medical steward stationed across the street, tells of the event and the notable people who attended, including JEB Stuart.

To commemorate the event please join us in for an afternoon program:
Master seamstress and professional reenactor, Connie Clowers, will present her Civil War Ear Fashion Show, describing the fashions of the era and how the styles changed during the years of the Civil War.
A brief "ladies only" presentation on Instructions to the Victorian Bride.  Gentlemen will be ushered into a separate room and regaled with stories by Larry Clowers, professional reenactor.

Refresh yourself on sparkling punch and nibble on tea time treats and a wedding cake created from an 1864 cookbook recipe.

A special treat: View the 1930 wedding dress the Holladay women wore for their respective weddings!  Photo documentation presented along with the original 13-inch waist dress!

From 2p - 5p. Period civilian attire encouraged. $15 admission fee, with a portion of the proceeds donated to the Orange County Historical Society.  For information and reservations, please call 540-672-4893.
